I really love this Shakedown St. Its fun to hear Jerry and Brent go back and fourth mimicing each others sound. Good stuff!

Well now. Wow, that was a quick 25 years weren't it? We piled into two cars, a 73 Monte Carlo and a VW Kublewagon of various ages. We had a pilgrim in tow off to his first show and a sampling of little green substances "for later".

The weather turned to us and said, "You kids ready for a challenge? You up for this?"

We got into the donut and snuggled into my favourite spot in the Rectum - first row first lelel directly opposite the stage eye level with The Lads. Great sound right there. Where're those samples, Eugene?

Pilgrim said, "What will they open with?" I mused, "Only one thing would make any sense tonight". Sho as your born - CR&S! Place went NUTS!

Nice show and few prezzies for Philly not heard for a bit. Spoogie Candyman, and a nifty Jack A Roe. Stand out is the slammin' Truckin-TOO with Phil swooping down like a B-47 fulla Phil-O-Tonic Pave Makers. Wheeeeee!!!

Left us all completely gut smooshed. Got some, yes sir, I do think so.

Now, the ride home back up to Pennington, NJ, that kids is a story all by itself. The Monte Carlo Sleigh Ride. Oh my.

Subject: run me out in the Cold Rain And Snow... literally
For me, the CR&S opener was an ominous foreboding of what was to occur later that night.... We had seats on the floor that night, and spent a good portion of the show precariously dancing on our chairs. As the last ring of Baby Blue slowly faded from our ears and we turned to depart, I discovered that someone had taken my coat from the back of my chair... BUMMER!!!

As others have mentioned, we had that early spring snowstorm that night, and on the long PT ride home I kept blurting out "run me...OUT IN THE COLD RAIN AND SNOW!!" until someone finally yelled "SHUT THE #*&% UP!!"

I can only assume that the person who took my coat really needed it. I just hope they were kind, and I like to think that they went on to perform ten good deeds in turn. Anyways, my memory of that night has always been the bad ending... until now. Getting to hear this show again reminded me what a great time I had before that! Thanks so much to everyone who is deadicated to preserving this legacy.

Subject: First show and hooked for life
Needless to say, this show blew me away. I had listened to some live Dead on my buddie's 8 track player in his 71 Road Runner but had no idea what it was like to experience this band live. Every note of this show burned a lasting imprint into my brain. I can still see the dude in the tie-die tux in section G swirling to the opening notes of Cold Rain and Snow and feel my heart race during drums when I thought the Spectrum had turned into a spaceship and lifted off and levitated over the Delaware River Bridge. I also remember wondering if the music (and my head) could peak any higher than the previous riff of the Terrapin jam and then the next riff would come along and answer a resounding YES to that question. And the next riff after that would answer even louder.

I was 18 when I went to this show and had been to a couple dozen rock shows. Nothing had come close to this. The intensity level started when the lights went down remained high throughout the whole show. The sound quality was light years better than any other show I had seen and the crowd was insane.

Subject: Very Lively Recording
Vocals and instruments are all right there and the songs are pretty well played. It's problem is distortion ~ recording levels were too hot. Bobby after Might as Well (excellent): "We're gonna take a short break, oh, uh, we're gonna take a short nap." But the opposite of yawner is what this show be. The distortion, especially on the highs, will annoy you who are sensitive to such things. This recording will speer your ears, but the performances are so good you can't stop listening. All of the songs seem to be attacked with passion and thus there results much fire. Maybe it depends on your playback system, your tastes, or whatever, but your ears will eventually provide the EQ. This is a topnotch show. I am spoiled from listening to Bertha's so I have to give it a 4.5 merely due to distortion. Sailor sounds like it speeds up in places, but perhaps the players just hurried some here and there. Usually this means that some players lost all or part of their monitor mix and couldn't hear themselves speed up as a result of losing the sound. Also some minor scratching noises are present similar to the sounds of cables being unplugged and replugged. Drums and Space move us like they're really having fun. I'm for that, and Truckin' (playing this at super low volume) and Bobby goofs lyrics on second verse. Then he substitutes "Ever since he's went and had his sex change" instead of "Living on reds and vitamin C and cocaine" you, as a listener, tend to unintentionally add, "All a friend can say is ain't it a shame." but he blub-glubs that line and they go blasting into a deep, albeit, short Truckin' Jam and into Dew. What happened to the Other One? Clicks and pops. Distortion is still obvious on the quieter parts of Dew. Huh?... So what? "Evan, just shut up and enjoy it." --- Bear. Is this a healy-wiz? Shut up and bear it. Oh, okay. Dew splits the atom. Sugar Mag is anticlimactic ~ they're exhausted. Baby, blue, it's all over NOW....but you don't want it to stop

Subject: Meh
This is a great show, but the audience version is much better, as there is all the added energy from the crowd, especially during Shakedown. The rating is soley for the show, not the recording.

Subject: Run me out in the cold rain and snow!
That's for sure. This night was cold and snowy. Warm as hell inside though. This old barn (the spectrum) really had it's moments over the years. This night was one of them. I am partial to good audience recordings...but this Shakedown SBD fucking rocks. Cold night on the south side of Philly. I recommend excessive volume!

Subject: The Quintessential Other One Intro
The 2 minutes of build up into the the 2nd--and only---verse of The Ohter One was worth the price of admission to this show. I spent the night in the 10th row with an old buddy; The Other One beat the shit out of us.

Subject: Jerry was
This was my first Dead show and Jerry spoke to me personally during Terrapin, telling me that he was "Ter-rippin" along with the rest of us. Not likely, but that's what I heard ;>) I have an excellent audience tape of this show that sounds typically boomy for the Spectrum but at least it's not distorted like this source. Five-star show; two-star recording.

Subject: Pretty Good Sound
I think this concert sounds fine. true some distortion. but very listenable imo. Was my first dead concert and they played a song my young ears had never heard: Looks like rain.Memory of that song at this concert has stuck with me 23 years. i stumbled on this site and was curios how looks like rain sounded. it indeed brought a big smile to me. i have the dead fever all over again. i have rebought 80% of thier commercial releases and am really enjoying the live concerts on IA.

Subject: Marginal at best
I had such a great analog soundboard of this in the old days. This version is not it. Too bad, since this is truly one of the early 80's classic shows. This SBD is beyond repair, as the distortion levels are permanent.

I attended this show. It was clearly one of the best shows of the tour. Shakedown Street is the best version ever. Lost Sailor/Saint of Circumstance are over the top. The Band was in rare form for this time period and the amount of tunes played confirms they were having fun. This version is sound board and clearly is better then the other posted version, IMO. If it wasn't for the shows in the 60's and 70's this show would get 5 stars. But IMO, this is a solid 4 stars. The tone is right on.
